El Oceano Beach Hotel Entrance with Thatched Roof

El Oceano Hotel and Restaurant, Mijas Costa

In Commercial, Projectsby Karlin van der Vyver

El Oceano hotel and restaurant in Miraflores is an oasis of laid-back luxury, between Marbella and La Cala de Mijas on Spain’s wonderful Costa del Sol. When we say ‘beachfront’, we really mean it.

Right on the water’s edge with most rooms having unspoiled sea views and the restaurant and bar terrace right on the beachfront.

Cape Reed were proud participants in the makeover by designing and building the revamped restaurant terrace to help create a truly unique dining experience.

Famed for its waterfront views, El Oceano’s restaurant terrace features a natural timber structure made of specially selected eucalyptus poles and saligna laths imported from South Africa. White wash colour treatment, glass enclosure and stone finishing help create a spacious and contemporary setting while preserving an atmosphere of seaside luxury.

This project used 28.6 metric tons of timber and 12.6 kilometers of saligna laths. Cape Reed’s design and engineer department began work on the concept in the spring of 2015, drawing inspiration from the character and history of the ancient Phoenicians – a nation that traded the Mediterranean many centuries ago with timber and other products.

Demolition of the pre-existing structure and ground preparation began shortly after New Year, and the structures were fully completed in time for the hotel’s re-opening during Holy Week.
